New on Netflix today! January 15th, 2016

Some interesting additions today, including a comedy having to do with Stanley Kubrick faking the moon landing, a hipster comedy in which we see prosthetic penises on both Adam Scott and Jason Schwartzman, a few crumby-looking TV shows (including yet another iteration of Degrassi), and a musical staring Anna Kendrick (cringe).
